A group of people from across the state gathered together on Saturday, August 31, 2013, to honor a Ralls County pioneer, Jane E. Clay Trabue. Descendants of Mrs. Trabue along with members of the Daughters of the American Revolution and Sons of the American Revolution took time during the Labor Day holiday to mark her grave. Jane E. Clay was born to the Rev. Eleazer Clay and his wife, Jane Apperson Clay in Chesterfield County, Virginia in January, 1776. She married Edward Trabue and lived in Woolford County, Kentucky where she raised 7 children. After her husband’s death, Jane and her children came to Missouri.

Work Begins on Ralls County Courthouse Bleigh Construction of Hannibal has begun repair work on the Ralls County Court House in New London. Scaffolding encases the front of the building so workers can work on the bell tower and take off the old roof and replace it with a new shingle roof. Outside wood surfaces will be scraped down and repainted with lead-free paint. All three entrance doors will be replaced with handicapped-accessible doors. Other repairs include the south steps into the basement; a leak in the northeast corner of the basement; and a hallway floor damaged by a leaky air conditioner. Ralls County Clerk Ernie Duckworth said the outside work is scheduled for completion by December 1 if the weather holds. The inside work will be finished shortly thereafter.

VIEWS & COMMENTS WHO IS THE ENEMY? First, I would like to say that there was a tie in the reader’s choice poll for this week. That really irks me. The whole purpose of the poll is to let me know what the readers want to read. And it appears that the small sample I got was evenly divided amongst the topics given. So once again, I’m left choosing what to write about. Technically, the “other” category won, but there were two different others and one of them had about a gazillion choices in it. And without further ado, the winner is – foreign policy and conservative values. This week is a two for one. Syria: I think what is hardest for me as I sit and write this is the not knowing. What will we do? And whatever the decision is, what is the reasoning behind it?? I hope that Congress debates any military action taken. I’m not sure what I believe is right anymore. I told my son earlier this evening that if there was ever going to be any American interference in Syria, I felt it should have happened from the outset of the war. At least then, we would have had better odds of knowing who we were dealing with. I don’t agree with the use of any kind of chemical weapons, but at the same time, I don’t believe we know who we are helping anymore. It stinks like Libya and Egypt. If we give any kind of military aid now, do we know for sure that it will be remembered as it was intended? Or are we simply helping our greatest enemy build its forces even stronger? This is only part of the debate. In the end, will any of it matter? Would Syria, Libya or Egypt send forces our way if we had to fight our government to keep our freedoms? I don’t think so. Of course, I am basing that argument on the assumption that they are all three capable of rendering aid, which we know they aren’t. But I don’t believe they would help us – maybe the government. The majority of them can’t stand the United States and what we stand for. I guess what I am trying to say is I’m sticking with what Doug Hagmann at Canada Free Press says. And it’s scary – some call it conspiracy – but if it happens, then what is it? Even scarier. The internet and technology have made big brother pretty powerful- between being all seeing, hearing and knowing. It has also put the power in our hands. We can find anything out there. And we can educate and inform ourselves with lots of theories and plenty of knowledge. But we must use it in order for it to be anywhere close to as powerful as big brother. Conservative values: I saw a post on my daughter’s Facebook the other day from a friend of hers who just started a government class in college. This friend and a couple of her friends really impressed me with what they had to say. They give me hope. They are all only just graduated or just a few years out of high school. The young are interested. They do care and I believe they will get involved. If we are to have a chance in 2016, they have to. If they read this every week, they know who they are. I hope they do. It put a smile on my face and warmth in my heart. Keep it up guys – we need more of you spreading the word. These young adults are the future of our country and I hope that they will continue to discuss their feelings and opinions as openly as they were the other day. I hope everything works out in Syria. I really do. I don’t want to hear Dinesh D’Souza say he was right. I hope young conservatives out there hold onto their values and fight the good fight for 2016. And hold on everyone, 2014 midterms are right around the corner. And they are more important than you may think.
From The Editor
by Editor Carolyn Trower
I was doing a little housekeeping over the weekend and my grandson told me it was a crime to work on Labor Day. As I continued I thought of my parents and the work ethic instilled in me not so much by word as by watching them work at their jobs, chores around the house and all manner of necessary “work” involved in raising a family. And I thought about the many older people I know in this community. We are both blessed and inspired to have so many people in their 70’s, 80’s and 90’s that are still vibrant and active in family and community life. They may not go full-tilt like they once did but there are those who still mow their yards, tend their gardens and put up bright jars of tomatoes and pickles. They are the heart and soul of church luncheons and bake sales that would be sadly lacking without their culinary talents and help in organizing such events. They read for pleasure, stay current with the news and attend school activities. They lift their voices in church and chat with friends while grocery shopping. But, Labor Day was created as a day of leisure, a day to relax and enjoy family, friends and one last bar-b-que. There’s always work to do, chores that demand our time. Out of the mouths of babes? Maybe. Perhaps we can learn from both the older and younger generation.
CHAIN OF FOOLS From time immemorium people have grumbled about big government. Unless, of course, the sprawl of authority was instrumental to their instrumental to their well-being. And, there have always been loopholes. (In feudal times grain that was spilled outside the Lord’s granary could be salvaged by the serfs.) And so evolved the concept of “almost honest.” Even before the feudal system, battering and the exchange of materials having or representing value formed the interaction that would one day become capitalism. The birth of the machine age made it nearly impossible for “keep ‘em down on the farm.” Of course, once they moved to town, there was so feudal Lord’s granary, or flock, or cattle to supply succor for service. Enter the shopkeeper. Today’s “shops” are much different. Not only are they more hygienic, but modern measuring devices have replaced the length of one’s reach from the tip of the nose (one Old English “yard”), and the balance of a commodity against selected stones or a spring counterweight (plus the weight of the shopkeeper’s thumb) with computer measured, digital pricing. Enter chain stores and; oh, yes; rebates. To some extent, we are presented with an initial paradox. Many ads and government press releases are touting the support of small business since the meltdown and the ability of big business to avoid taxes. Small business, as defined by the government’s Small Business Administration (itself a big business) is: “One that is independently owned and operated (does this mean no stockholders or what); is organized for profit; not dominate in its field; operates for profit in the USA; contributes to national economy by paying taxes; and uses American products or labor. A small business can be a partnership, a corporation or a proprietorship. Small business (quote/unquote) is, to a degree, restricted as to allowable annual revenue as: farms, $750,000; ranches, 1 million; and others, 4-7 million. Hardly the mom-and-pop store that sponsors a kids’ team or donates for Santa’s treats. While it is not available to even the most trendy smart phone, there is an App available to cyber-merchants called “rebates.” But, before we jump into that, there is another App that I, personally, would call “fleecing.” This involves cyber check-out devices. (Somehow the term “cash register” just doesn’t fit anymore.) It seems that these computerized sales-recording devices are programmed to add the service charge for a “plastic purchase” to each transaction. This includes cash transactions upon which the business will pay no service charge. Skimming, fleecing, carnival shell game, anyway you play it, the rubes lose. Briefly on rebates (because I’m running out of room and will continue next week). Rebates are a staple of corporate marketing because: 1. Less than 50% complete the “mail-in” (interesting that one cannot complete the process online, but I’ll explain that next week) process, and supply all the documentation to qualify. 2. The company gets to collect interest on your purchase money until they finally send you a check. 3. Information given in the rebate form is a source of data mining to be sold.

Perry Summer Shootout set for Saturday, Sept. 7
The tenth Annual Perry Summer Shootout/Amanda Jaspering Memorial Pull, held Sept. 8, 2012, was the biggest ever. The pull started at 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8 and had 133 hooks. The park was full of tractors ranging from a simple stock to a mini rod. A large crowd began to gather early in the afternoon. The new safety wall and lights made it possible to pull in 18 different classes. Full Pull Magazine was on hand to take pictures of each tractor that pulled. The Jaspering Family started the event to coincide with the 2003 Perry Fall Festival at the urging of Amanda Jaspering. Each year the proceeds from the pull were given back to the community with donations to area food pantries and schools. Amanda tragically lost her life in a car accident in 2008. Since then the proceeds have been used to fund a scholarship in Amanda’s honor. This year’s eleventh annual pull will begin at 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Bill Trower Memorial Park, in Perry. Organizers are expecting an even bigger crowd and invite everyone to come out and enjoy the fun.

Inexpensive Small Home Repairs
If you’re worried about paying a lot of money for what may just be a simple repair, it’s best to talk to contractors who specialize in that repair. As often as not, a professional plumber, electrician, or other specialist (or even their knowledgeable staff who answer the phones) will be more than willing to suggest some simple things over the phone for the consumer to try before scheduling a service call. This is because they know how frustrating it is to pay $75+ to have them come for just a few minutes. It also creates goodwill because you will probably call them back if you can’t fix it yourself, and will be inclined to call them for all your future needs, as well as recommend them to others. However, it is important to remember that profes-
sionals have invested in a lot of special training, tools (and usually carry plenty of special parts on their trucks) and have acquired the experience that allows them to recognize symptoms and fix things
quickly. So it is usually more efficient, and often even cheaper, to pay a contractor his minimum fee for a few minutes of work to get the job done right, rather than go through the process of elimination
yourself, running to the hardware store a couple times, etc. Read more: http:// www.homeadvisor.com/ a r t i c l e . s h ow. S i mp l e Home-Repairs.11123. html#ixzz2dkI86HDC

This family’s secret to comfort is buried in the back yard. What do these people know about home heating and cooling that their neighbors haven’t discovered yet? The secret to consistent, comfortable temperatures year round is in their ground source heat pump-and their enjoying lower utility bills on top of it all. A ground source system also offers other benefits too important to keep quiet about, like cleanliness, safety and low maintenance. A ground source heat pump system uses the earth’s consistent temperature to produce about three dollars worth of heating and cooling for every dollar’s worth of electricity used.

Until Mister Cash had gone and yet something told him that was not the thing to do. He couldn’t hide his dog forever and, besides, Mister Cash was bound to find out sooner or later. So there was nothing to do but face up to it and get it over with. He left the buckets on the front porch in the shade and went around the side of the cabin and Uncle Jesse and Mister Cash were out by the woodpile. Uncle Jesse was propped against the stacked wood and Mister Cash was squatting on the ground. Uncle Jesse saw him first and then Mister Cash, and the storekeeper paid him no mind but gawked at Lady and then busted out laughing. The dog was at Skeeter’s feet. Her tail was curved high and the dead rat and the frayed rope trailed from her neck. Uncle Jesse did not even smile, but Mister Cash slapped his leg and his little pot-belly shook his mirth. “So that’s it!” That’s the thing that outrun my Gabe and jumped my hog dogs.” Skeeter felt his neck redding and then his face and he stooped by his dog and untied the rat and threw it away. Be John Brown if he’d humiliate his dog in front of a man like Mister Cash. Only then did he speak and he strained for politeness. “Good morning, Mister Cash. How you like my dog?” The storekeeper
glanced at Uncle Jesse and walked over and patted Lady and she sniffed his hand and turned her head toward the truck and was tense and nervous. “It’s a dog all right,” Cash said. “Never saw one like it, but it’s a dog. Rat runner, huh?” Uncle Jesse shifted his position maybe an inch or two. He was comfortable there in the shade and leaning against the woodpile. “Cash drove up a few minutes back. Know’d he aim to stick around, so told him you’d caught that thing.” “But you didn’t tell me much.” Cash spoke over his shoulder and then squatted by Lady to examine her. “Never saw such shut-mouth folks about a dog. What you two up to? Aiming to hide her?” “Can’t hide a dog.” Skeeter crossed the yard and stood by Uncle Jesse, and Lady came to him and stretched out in the shade. “That’s right,” Cash said. “Looks like a pretty good dog.” “She does all right.” “Do she sure enough laugh?” “Sort of chuckles. Cries, too.” “Beaten’st thing I ever heard of.” Cash took off his felt hat and mapped his forehead. “What she good for? Rats?” “Hunt anything,” Skeeter said. “Aim to make a bird dog out of her, don’t we, Uncle Jesse?” “Maybe.” The old man moved deeper into the shade and sat down and rested his back against the woodpile. “Mister Cash—“
Skeeter had to know and so he asked it forthrightly. “You know what kind of dog I found myself?” “Ain’t even beginning to about to know. Just know one thing she don’t belong around here.” “Then you don’t know nobody who lost a dog?” Cash tilted his hat low on his forehead and looked hard at Lady. “Ain’t nobody around here lost that dog. But I know one thing I know a boy who found hisself a dog.” “And finder’s keepers, ain’t she, Cash?” Uncle Jesse suggested. “Finder’s keepers. That’s how things are around here.” The storekeeper jerked his head at Jesse and the old man got reluctantly to his feet and walked from the shade into the sunshine and then Cash said, “Come on out to the truck. Got something to show both of you.” They headed for the truck and Lady ran before them and held her nose close to the ground and was excited. Cash climbed into the truck and opened a crate and out stepped the most beautiful dog that any of them had ever seen; an English setter with soft eyes and a cold nose and a majestic demeanor. Uncle Jesse stepped back as though in the presence of a dignitary and he whistled softly and this was evidence of his admiration. Even Lady moved back, but kept her eyes on the setter, blinking slowly...

School Security important for Ralls R-II Student safety is the highest priority for the Ralls County R-II School District. Students in all buildings are supervised at all times. The district has upgraded door locks and has installed video cameras at each school. Law enforcement officers patrol the area around the school buildings and are present at sporting events. Each year the students practice tornado, fire and earthquake drills. Due to recent school shooting incidents teachers and staff were instructed on how to handle situations involving possession of weapons by students and possession of weapons by anyone else. In addition new training was given on what to do when an individual did not follow established visitor procedures to enter one of the school buildings. Training for other safety procedures included hostage/barricade situations; serious injury/illness of student or staff during school hours; fatal accident during school hours; campus unrest; and bomb threat. At New London Elementary a person must check in with the school secretary who will then

buzz that person into the main building. The district also erected a new safety fence around New London’s playground. At Center Elementary a person must ring the bell on the outside of the building. The school secretary or principal will then open the outside door and admit that person. The playground is surrounded by a safety fence. Outside doors other than the main entrance are kept locked during the day at all buildings.

Our interruptions may be God’s opportunities. Sunday, September 1st, worship service opened with prayer and congregational hymns. Sister Thelma Fugate welcomed everyone and read announcements, Elder JoAnn Allison gave our call to worship and Sister Marsha Mayfield led responsive reading Salvation (Old Testament). Celebration hymn “O How I Love Jesus,” was followed by Elder Elnora Perkins offering morning prayer and the choral response. Hymn of thanks “Thank You, Lord” was followed by scripture, youth sharing and message. Sister Thelma Fugate read Psalm 112; Sister Linda K. Burton read Luke 14:1, 7-14; Trenton recited “Jesus Loves Me”; Camron read Psalm 84:8-12; Va’Nayah recited “I Love God A lot, Amen”; Re’Nayjah read Psalm 69:14-15; Amiion recited “Jesus Loves Me” and Mariah read Psalm 23:1-3, under the guidance of Sister Tayla Mayfield. Rev. Vaughn’s message The Ten Commandments, You shall not commit adultery. The choir rendered two musical selections “I Won’t Worry No More” and “Hold On,” soloist Sister Tayla Mayfield and Sister Marsha Mayfield. Offertory scripture, offertory hymn “I Am On the Battlefield for My Lord” and Elder Allison offering prayer was followed by the doxology. Joys were heard and concerns were placed at the altar during pastoral prayer, as Rev. M. Faye Vaughn continues to lift up in prayer all concerns/ situations/opportunities standing in the need of prayer. We may not know what all the needs are, but GOD knows. Congregational hymn “Just A Little Talk With Jesus” was sung before receiving our Pastor, Rev. M. Faye Vaughn offering the WORD. Scripture text was from Galatians 5:1, 13-15 the message “The Holy Spirit, As A Tree.” Christ died to set us free from sin and from a long list of laws and regulations. Christ came to set us free, not free to do whatever we want, because that would lead us back into slavery to our selfish desires. We must stand against those who would enslave us with rules, methods or special conditions for being saved or growing in Christ. The message was followed by hymn of invitation, communion hymn, closing hymn “God Has Smiled On Me” and the benediction. “When you begin to feel critical of someone, make a list of that person’s positive qualities. When problems need to be addressed, confront in love rather than gossip.”

Labor Day Sunday, Sept. 1, opened with the altar candles lit by Jacob and Justine Picard. “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow” was sung by Arlen Provancha. Pastor Todd welcomed his sister and her family as guests. The cookbooks have arrived and the CWF will meet Friday, Sept. 6 at 7 p.m., for purchase. The yard sale for Oct. 5 will also be discussed. The Fundraising Committee will meet Thursday, Sept. 5, at 7 p.m. John DiMaria announced plans for the Golf Tournament. Sponsors and golf teams are needed. Call 314-313-3762, email, firstname.lastname@example.org for information or contact John or Arlen. “Open the Eyes of My Heart” was sung in praise. Cindy Naber sent a message that all was well. The prayer hymn was “I Am Praying For You”. Janie Johnson was our prayer concern, along with prayer that our government will make the right decisions in the weeks ahead. “I Need Thee Every Hour “ was the response. After Pastor’s meditation “Beneath the Cross of Jesus” was sung for sharing the Lord’s Supper. Elders were Greg and Dean Harrison. Deacons were Eunice Fisher, Carol Norman, LouAnn and Warren Hetrick. “In the Garden” was special music sung by Cheri and Arlen. For the children’s moment, Alisha Eisele was helped by Justin as she used a balloon to demonstrate how someone who gets too puffed up with their own importance, can be quickly deflated. Hebrews 13:1-9, 15-16, was read by LouAnn for Pastor’s sermon, “Offering Sacrifices of Service and Praise”. A correct way to give God praise is with our hearts, praise God in our community with labor and proclaim God with our lips. Focus on God walking with us and giving thanks for all He does for us. The invitation hymn, “I Surrender All” was sung. In recognition of our world in crisis, singing “God Bless America” closed our service.

The lesson was on “How can I know for sure what God is like?” God is in control if we will allow it. John 1:1-18 John laid out the foundational truths on which his entire Gospel account stands. JESUS Christ is the Word of God, is God, and is the One who reveals God. If God came to the world, would we recognize Jesus? Brian Meranda opened worship services with announcements, praise and prayer. Carol Billett, Susan Billett, and Jenny Johnson led the music commencing with “Be Still My Soul,” “Jesus, Lover of My Soul.” Interim Pastor Willis Jones prayed for the lost. The offertory hymn was “It Is Well with My Soul.” Offertory was taken by Ralph Williams and Brian Meranda with prayer of thanks. Susan Williams played the special, “Chorale from Cantata.” Int. Pastor Willis prayed and led the word. 1 Corinthians 1:10-18 Paul taught how God despises division in the church. There are 41,000 denominations and groups that call themselves Christian denominations worldwide. Does having that many groups serve the spreading of the Gospel? There isn’t a Baptist section of heaven, a Catholic section of heaven, a Pentecostal section of heaven, etc. There is ONLY A SAVED section of heaven. Those who made Jesus Christ the Lord and savior of their lives! Work together in love for one another. Be more like Jesus. The invitation hymn was “Rejoice in the Lord Always.” Ralph Williams and Brian Meranda led in prayer and in the Lord’s Supper. Ronnie Rouse closed with prayer. Worship services are at 10:10 a.m. first Baptist is located at 509 Salling Street in Perry. All are welcome. Our phone number is 565-2640. Check us out on Facebook for updates during the week.

OBITUARIES AND CHURCH NEWS
The Church at Ariel
Pastor Tim Sanders
The Silver-Haired Crown, Pass It On Solomon writes in Proverbs 16-31 the silver-haired head is a crown of glory. If it is found in the way of righteousness. One of the hardest things to do is to pass on wisdom gained from the years of acquiring that silver-haired crown, but it is one of the most important tasks given to those who wear it. Prayer: Lord, help us to gain a heart of wisdom along with the silver-haired crown. The Church at Ariel (Ariel Christian) is located in Ralls County off Highway A 1.5 miles west of Salt River Bridge on Ariel Lane. Follow the signs. Services are at 10:30 a.m. PUBLIC NOTICE FEMA-4130-DR-MO The Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) hereby gives notice to the public of its intent to reimburse State and local governments and agencies, and eligible private non-profit organizations for eligible costs incurred to repair and/or replace facilities damaged by Severe Storms, Straight-line Winds, Tornadoes, and Flooding occurring from May 29 to June 10, 2013. This notice applies to the Public Assistance (PA) and Hazard Mitigation Grant (HMGP) programs implemented under the authority of the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, 42 USC §§ 5121-5206.as amended. Under a major disaster declaration (FEMA-4130-DR-MO) signed by the President on July 18, 2013 the following counties in the State of Missouri have been designated adversely affected by the disaster and are eligible for PA only: Barton, Callaway, Cape Girardeau, Chariton, Clark, Howard, Iron, Knox, Lewis, Lincoln, Maries, Marion, Miller, Montgomery, Osage, Perry, Pike, Putnam, Ralls, Scotland, Shelby, St. Charles, St. Louis, Ste. Genevieve, Stoddard, Sullivan, Texas, and Webster Counties. Direct federal assistance is authorized. All counties in the State of Missouri are eligible for HMGP. There are no Counties declared for Individual Assistance. This public notice concerns public assistance activities that may affect historic properties, activities that are located in or affect wetland areas or the 100-Year Floodplain (areas determined to have a one percent probability of flooding in any given year), and critical actions within the 500-Year Floodplain. Such activities may adversely affect the historic property, floodplain or wetland, or may result in continuing vulnerability to flood damage. Such activities may include restoring facilities located in a floodplain with eligible damage to pre-disaster condition. Examples of such activities include, but are not limited to, the following: 1. Non-emergency debris removal and disposal; 2. Non-emergency protective measures; 3. Repair/replacement of roads, including streets, culverts, and bridges; 4. Repair/replacement of public dams, reservoirs and channels; 5. Repair/replacement of public buildings and related equipment; 6. Repair/replacement of public water control facilities, pipes and distribution systems; 7. Repair/replacement of public utilities, including sewage treatment plants, sewers and electrical power distribution systems; and 8. Repair/replacement of eligible private, non-profit facilities (hospitals, educational centers, emergency and custodial care services, etc.). The President’s Executive Order 11988, Floodplain Management, and Executive Order 11990, Protection of Wetlands, requires that all Federal actions in or affecting the 100-Year floodplain or wetland areas be reviewed for opportunities to move the facility out of the floodplain or wetland and to reduce the risk of future damage or loss from flooding and minimize harms to wetlands. However, FEMA has determined that in certain situations, there are no alternatives to restoring an eligible facility located in the floodplain to its pre-disaster condition. These situations meet all of the following criteria: 1. The FEMA estimated cost of repairs is less than 50 percent of the estimated cost to replace the facility and the replacement cost of the facility is less than $100,000. 2. The facility is not located in a floodway or coastal high hazard area. 3. The facility has not sustained structural damage in a previous presidentially declared flood disaster or emergency. 4. The facility is not defined as critical (e.g., hospital, generating plant, contains dangerous materials, emergency operation center, etc.). FEMA will provide assistance to restore the facilities described above to their predisaster condition except when measures to mitigate the effects of future flooding may be incorporated into the restoration work. For example, insufficient waterway openings under culverts and bridges may cause water back up to wash out the structures. The water back up could wash out the facility and could damage other facilities in the area. Increasing the size of the waterway opening would mitigate, or lessen, the potential for this damage. Additional examples of mitigation measures include providing erosion protection at bridge abutments or levees, and extending entrance tubes on sewage lift stations. Disaster assistance projects to restore facilities, which do not meet the criteria listed above, must undergo a detailed review. The review will include a study to determine if the facility can be moved out of the floodplain. The public is invited to participate in the review. The public may identify alternatives for restoring the facility and may participate in analyzing the impact of the alternatives on the facility and the floodplain. An address and phone number for obtaining information about specific assistance projects is provided at the end of this Notice. The final determination regarding the restoration of these facilities in a floodplain will be announced in future Public Notices. Due to the urgent need for and/or use of the certain facilities in a floodplain, actions to restore the facility may have started before the Federal inspector visits the site. Some of these facilities may meet the criteria for a detailed review to determine if they should be relocated. Generally, facilities may be restored in their original location where at least one of the following conditions applies:
1. The facility, such as a flood control device or bridge, is functionally dependent on its floodplain location. 2. The facilities, such as a park or other open-use space, already represent sound floodplain management and, therefore, there is no need to change it. 3. The facility, such as a road or a utility, is an integral part of a larger network that could not be relocated economically. 4. Emergency action is needed to address a threat to public health and safety. The effects of not relocating the facilities will be examined. In each case, the examination must show an overriding public need for the facility at its original location that clearly outweighed the requirements in the Executive Order to relocate the facility out of the floodplain. FEMA will also consult State and local officials to make certain that no actions taken will violate either State or local floodplain protection standards. The restoration of these facilities may also incorporate certain measures designed to mitigate the effects of future flooding. This will be the only Notice to the public concerning these facilities. The National Historic Preservation Act requires federal agencies to take into account the effects of their undertakings on historic properties. Those actions or activities affecting buildings, structures, districts or objects 50 years or older or that affect archeological sites or undisturbed ground will require further review to determine if the property is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places (Register). If the property is determined to be eligible for the Register, and FEMA’s undertaking will adversely affect it, FEMA will provide additional public notices. For historic properties not adversely affected by FEMA’s undertaking, this will be the only public notice. FEMA also intends to provide Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMPG) funding under Section 404 of the Stafford Act to the State of Missouri for the purposes of mitigating future disaster damages. Hazard mitigation projects may involve the construction of a new facility (e.g., retention pond, or debris dam), modification of an existing undamaged facility (e.g., improving waterway openings of bridges or culverts), and the relocation of facilities out of the floodplain. Subsequent Notices will provide more specific information as project proposals are developed. Information about assistance projects may be obtained by submitting a written request to the Regional Director, DHS-FEMA Region VII; 9221 Ward Parkway, Suite 300; Kansas City, MO 64114-3372. The information may also be obtained by calling: (816) 283-7060, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Comments should be sent in writing to the Regional Director, at the above address, within 15 days of the date of publication of this notice.

When white Europeans decided to push the Native Indians out of the way in order to settle America, it’s both tragic and unfortunate that they did not pay heed to such wisdom. This country would have been better for it, and there would not have been as much suffering by American Indians.” Senator James Abourezk, former Chairman U.S. Senate Indian Affairs Committee
The Spirit of Indian Women
Edited by Judith Fitzgerald and Michael Oren Fitzgerald “One of the great callings of art is to excavate a lost part of our culture, and the Fitzgeralds answer this summons handsomely here in a compact exploration of Native American women’s spirituality … This book pairs writings and oratory alongside stunning photographs most of which have never been published before. In portrait after portrait, the souls of the women haunt the frontiers of the human spirit with a staunch beauty that is both refined and raw. The wisdom in thses faces is alone well worth the price of the book.” Publishers Weekly “The Spirit of Indian Women…is an act of reclamation as much as of spirituality; it reproduces precious and seldom-seen photographs of Native American women… Their images are interwoven with oral accounts, songs, and other documents that offer priceless glimpses into the little-understood lives and experiences of America’s foremothers; Janine Pease’s brilliant introduction sets the Fitzgeralds’ anthology in a whole historical context.” Library Journal.

Looking for that everelusive fountain of youth? Look no further. There are many things you can do to stay vital and healthy as you get older — such as exercising regularly and eating a healthful diet — but experts now believe that one of the best ways to age gracefully is to engage in a little social networking, both online and off. The Benefits of Staying Engaged As you get older, normal changes in your brain can make it more difficult for you to learn new information or remember things. In people who have dementia, this intellectual impairment becomes so severe that it interferes with their lives. Sometimes cognitive decline cannot be avoided, but in other cases, keeping your mind stimulated or interacting with your peers may help ward off dementia and depression, another common senior health concern. One recent study from the
Rush Alzheimer’s Disease Center in Chicago found that highly social seniors had a 70 percent lower rate of cognitive decline than their less social peers. Another study by researchers at the University of Alabama in Birmingham discovered that Internet use was associated with a 30 percent decrease in depres-

sive symptoms. Tips for Staying Socially Engaged as You Age There are plenty of ways to stay socially connected and intellectually stimulated: Nurture your social network. Make an effort to maintain your close personal relationships with family members, friends, church members, neighbors, and other important people in your life. Even if they’re not close by, you can still keep in touch by e-mail or Facebook. According to data from the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, the 74-plus demographic is the fastestgrowing group across Webbased social networks. Use of sites like Facebook and Twitter among Internet users 65 and older grew 100 percent between 2009 and 2010, from 13 percent to 26 percent. Many assisted living centers have even begun offering technology classes to get seniors online and in the social-networking loop. Play “mind” games. Regularly doing crossword puzzles and playing chess and other intellectually stimulating games keeps your mind active and, if you play with others, helps you stay socially connected to your peers. Scientists believe that both your body and your mind follow the principle “use it or lose it.”
So think of these games as fun ways to exercise your brain. Join a club. Contact your local senior center and ask around to see if there are any clubs in your area you would be interested in becoming a part of. Attending regular book club, garden club, or art club meetings is a great way to meet new people and establish rewarding relationships with people who have similar interests. Volunteer in your community. If you want to have a feeling of purpose or contribute to a greater cause, find a way to volunteer in your community. You can find out more about volunteer opportunities through organizations like Senior Corps, a government-run organization that connects seniors with local and national organizations in need of volunteers. Recent studies show that older individuals who volunteer have a reduced risk of death compared to their counterparts who do not. It’s not uncommon for older people to become socially and intellectually withdrawn. But if you make an effort to stay engaged as you get older, you will find more joy and satisfaction in life — and there is a good chance you will stay healthier as you age.

Kenzie Grossmann tosses ‘Perfect” game
Wellsville In their first game of the 2013 season the word of the game for the Mark Twain Lady Tigers (1-0) was perfect. Pitcher Kenzie Grossmann threw a perfect game, facing 15 Wellsville batters in the team’s 12-0 routing of Wellsville. Her stat line shows 5 innings pitched (15 Wellsville batters faced, 15 either struck out ot put out), 0 Hits, 0 Runs, 0 Earned Runs, 0 Walks and 9 Strikeouts. The Lady Tiger defense was also perfect with six putouts. The battery for the game saw Grossmann on the hill with Chloe Majors catching. Offensively, the Lady Tigers rapped out eight extra base hits for the contest while plating three runs in the first inning, added another run in the second and the third innings and exploded for seven runs in the fourth to end the game on the mercy rule (10 runs ahead after five innings or 15 runs after three innings). Perfect as in Kaelee Ogle’s day at the dish 3 for 3 with a triple and three runs scored. Other offensive stats included Victoria Thompson 2 for 3 with two extra base
hits (double, triple) and scored three runs; Taylor Picton was also 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs; Alicia Cole went 2 for 3 with a double and 3 runs knocked in; Chloe Majors was 2 for 4 and scored 2 runs; Kenzie Grossmann was 1 for 2 with a double and 2 RBIs; Kaitlyn Whaley was 1 for 3 with a double; and Kaitlyn Young went 1 for 3 with 2 RBIs. Bowling Green The Mark Twain Lady Tigers (1-1) battled Bowling Green to the last inning before falling 6-5 in a close contest. Kelsie Grossmann (1-1) pitched 6 and ⅔ innings allowing
The young Mark Twain Tigers ran into 10th ranked Brookfield on the road Friday night, Aug. 30 and fell 35-0 in a hard fought game. Defensively, Tyler Elledge led the team in tackles with Walker Sharp and Seth Harvey close behind. “We had some young and old players step up
and fill some spots in our first game,” said Coach Matt Hudson. “Brookfield was a great opponent and ranked 20th in the state. We will have a great week at practice and be ready for the Monroe City Panthers.” The Tigers host Monroe City on Friday, Sept. 6, with kickoff set for 7 p.m.

6 runs (2 earned) walking four and striking out the same number of Bowling Green batters. The battery consisted of Grossmann and Chloe Majors catching. Offensively, Alicia Cole went 2 for 4 at the dish with 2 runs scored while Majors (run), Victoria Thompson (double, run scored and 2 RBIs), Grossmann (double, run scored and 2 RBIs) and Taylor Picton (double, RBI) each went 1 for 3 at the plate. The Lady Tigers scored a single run in the first inning and then plated a four spot in the
sixth to knot the score at 5-5. “We had too many errors in the second inning,” said Coach Stacey Grossmann. The Lady Tigers host South Shelby on Thursday, Sept. 6; travel to Macon on Saturday, Sept. 7 (10 a.m.); then host Clark County (Monday, Sept. 9); Centralia (Tuesday, Sept. 10); and Hannibal (Thursday, Sept. 12).
